Postdoc Position in Proteomics of Sleep

Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich- Institute of Medical Psychology

A postdoc position is currently available in the research group of Maria Robles, Systems Chronobiology, at the LMU Munich, Germany. The position is associated to a SNSF funded SINERGIA collaborative project together with Adamantidis laboratory. This multidisciplinary project aims to identify molecular markers of brain activity during sleep using a range of neurophysiological techniques (Adamantidis) and mass spectrometry (MS)- based quantitative proteomics (Robles) (see doi:10.1126/science.aav2642; doi:10.1126/science.aav3617).

The Robles group employs a range of MS-based proteomics approaches to study molecular mechanism regulating circadian and sleep processes (click here to learn more about us).

We seek a motivated, enthusiastic, and talented postdoctoral researcher with the following qualifications:
Recent doctoral degree (biochemistry, bioinformatics or similar).
Experience with high-throughput quantitative proteomics approaches, single cell proteomics and DIA methods are a plus.
Expertise operating nanoLC-HPLC and Thermo Orbitrap instruments.
Ability to perform large scale multi-omics data analysis and programming skills (R, Python).
Excellent written and oral communications skills in English, proficiency in German is a plus.
Able to work independently, interact with members of a research team as well as collaborators and aptitude to mentor graduate and undergraduate students.

We offer:
Full postdoctoral position within the German public service scale (TV-L).
Cutting edge instrumentations, excellent infrastructure and core facilities.
Close mentorship and opportunity to manage an international collaborative project.
International and European networking with multidisciplinary academic and industry researchers.
Excellent scientific environment in one of the top-ranked universities in Germany located in an international, vibrant and beautiful city.
